ANTIQUE PRINT:

CRYSTAL PALACE, PRINTED IN THE MACHINERY DEPARTMENT.

[London : ca.1855]. A commemorative cotton handkerchief printed on the spot for visitors to the Crystal Palace. The design is twofold (each could be had separately) – an outer frieze printed in red and ochre depicts a somewhat Eurocentric (although perhaps tongue in cheek) view of the advance of civilization – a Fijian cannibal before civilization, Britannia bringing blessings, the advances of hats, shoes, socks and parasols, and finally the “Glorious Result of Civilization” – the tipping of hats, the advantages of “Gentlemen’s Ready Made Clothes” (a discreet advertisement for Mr Moses, the founder of Moss Bros.), the ignoring of street urchins selling matches, the kissing of hands and the adoption of the latest fashions – all tartan for the ladies in the 1850s. In the centre of the handkerchief, a black-and-white image has been superimposed of the Crystal Palace in its new home in South London, with its terraces and fountains.
Printed surface 56 x 55cm (approx. 22” x 21-3/4”). Outer frieze a little faded; some faint spotting and creasing, but still an attractive example of an evocative and ephemeral souvenir of a particular time and place.
